The new images of the sun were taken by the Inouye Solar Telescope, the most powerful man-made observatory of its kind, and it has been planned for 25 years. Allows you to get very detailed images of the chromosphere below Solar corona.
Images taken with the Inui Solar Telescope show fragments of the chromosphere of our parent star. About 82.5 thousand. how much. For comparison, one of them is attached to the ground, reflecting the scale of its volume. Pictures show fragments of scale only 18 km.
These observations are important to Earth. Scientists believe they can better predict solar activity and the associated solar storms that are being directed toward our planet. Built on the Haleakala Volcano on Maui, the Inouye Solar Telescope is culturally and spiritually important to Native Hawaiians. The observatory was created thanks to the National Science Foundation.
